Every time the surface of my pool is disturbed, the water is fizzy and bubbly for a moment. Is there a solution for this or any ideas?

Are there air bubbles coming through your return fittings when the pump is on? If so, they could "carbonate" the water, causing the problem you describe.

I'm new to this, but if you could tell me where I would look to check I will see.

The return fittings are usually in the side wall of the pool and return water to the pool from the pump and filter. If you put your hand in front of them the water flow will push your hand away from them. Look for air bubbles coming out of these ports.
